Anonymous NBA player takes Charlie Villanueva’s side in ‘cancer’ flap with Kevin Garnett

Shortly after Charlie Villanueva lashed out at Kevin Garnett for calling him a cancer patient (which, for the record, Garnett denied), Patrick wrote about how Garnett’s toughness is overstated. It turns out, an an anonymous NBA player, as quoted by ESPN, agrees:

Trash-talk can go too far fast, though, so there is a code. Off-limit topics: moms, wives, girlfriends, kids. And health. Honestly, I never thought anyone would cross the line to crack on an opponent about a medical condition. But according to Charlie Villanueva, that’s what Kevin Garnett supposedly did earlier this season when he called the Pistons forward a "cancer patient." Garnett later claimed otherwise, saying he had called Villanueva — who’s hairless because of a skin condition — a "cancerous" player.

I don’t know who’s telling the truth, but I don’t care. Garnett is a punk and a coward. I know, I know. Easy for me to say behind this column. Don’t worry, I’ll tell him to his face, too. And I’m not the only one who thinks that: If you’re not on his team, chances are you hate the guy. You can learn a lot about him by watching his eyes. If he’s talking to you — and he’s always talking — he avoids eye contact. My advice to other guys in the league: Stare him down, and he’ll retreat. From what I’ve seen, he’ll never mix it up with a player who’s bigger than he is. Personally, I think he’s scared to fight — like a playground bully who barks but doesn’t bite.

    I used to like him when he was a T-Wolve but since he’s been a Celtic I can’t stand the guy. And it’s not just because he’s a Celtic even though I absolutely hate them, I still love Ray Allen, it’s seems now that he’s old and isn’t as good he’s cockier and thinks he’s better. I watched videos of this fag starting fight w/ guards and then running away or almost getting the crap kicked out of him. Every other worrd out of his mouth is MF. When him and Paul Pierce are gone I’ll have to find two other people to join my top 5 hated list. Pierce #1, Ginobili #2, LeBron #3, Garnett #4, and Parker #5 (Tony)

    Pierce on Garnett are on my list too, lol. I knew Garnett was a punk once I saw him get punked by McDyess.

    Im from MN and I always thought kg picked fights with guys that aren’t really the fighting type. I mean who trys to fight Tim Duncan? Lol, and he hits him in the head when his back is turned, what a chump. He once got in a fight with Rick Rickert in a pick up game, Rick Rickert? I cant stand his defending the basket in between whistles also, I wish someone would just dunk on his head instead of shooting a shot…

    I remember when during a fight for a loose ball with Mcdyess in 2007, I think, Garnett threw the ball at Dice.  And then, Dice started going towards Garnett like he was about to knock him out and Garnett back peddled as fast as he could.  So yes, Garnett is all talk.
